Can anyone provide review of Wiley's GMAT Sentence Correction Grail 2018. Is this book good or is there a better option for sentence correction?

Hi bsahu,

When it comes to studying for the GMAT, there are a variety of different resources that you could use. Many Test Takers who use a 'book heavy' study approach end up getting 'stuck' at a particular score level, so you might want to consider other options. Even the best books are limited in what they can teach you; they also can't force you to approach questions in a certain way and their explanations are often one-sided.

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi bsahu,

Many Test Takers spend 3 months (or more) of consistent study time before they hit their 'peak' scores, so it's likely that you just have not put in enough time and effort yet. That having been said, raising a 410 to the point that you can consistently score 700+ will likely require at least another 3 months of consistent, guided study - and you'll have to make significant improvements to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections. Thankfully, the GMAT is a consistent, predictable Exam, so you CAN train to score at a higher level. With a planned Test Date in the first week of May, you only have about 5 weeks of additional study time remaining, so you might need to consider pushing back your Test Date.

1) How long ago did you take that practice CAT? If it's been at least a couple of weeks, then you should plan to take a NEW, FULL-LENGTH CAT (with the Essay and IR sections) sometime soon. Once you have that Score, you should report back here and we can discuss the results.

Rich

Sure I will do that. Thanks for providing your valuable inputs.

Would you be able to provide a review of the book which I mentioned for SC?

Hi bsahu,

Since I have not worked through that book in its entirety, I cannot provide much of an assessment on how that book might help you to improve your SC knowledge and sub-scores.

Hi bsahu,

Although I, too, am unable to provide a review of the book you mentioned, you may find it helpful to check out GMAT Club reviews of various verbal resources and read through some GMAT success stories to see what materials have worked well for other test-takers.

If you’d like some specific advice on how to improve your GMAT quant and verbal skills, feel free to reach out, and I’d be happy to help. You also may find my article with more information regarding
how to score a 700+ on the GMAT helpful.

Feel free to reach out with any further questions.
